Sean Sherk (Pictures) will not be stripped of his UFC lightweight title, UFC President Dana White told Yahoo! Sports on Friday. But while Sherk sits on the sidelines, B.J. Penn (Pictures) and Joe Stevenson will fight for an interim lightweight crown in January in Newcastle, England.
After his July 7 title defense against Hermes Franca (Pictures) in Sacramento, Calif., Sherk tested positive for having nandrolone metabolites in his system. The California State Athletic Commission suspended him a year and fined him $2,500.
Sherk denied using steroids and told Sherdog.com he has spent nearly $20,000 in legal fees to clear his name. His long-awaited hearing was postponed on Wednesday to Nov. 13 after the CSAC said the entire commission had not been able to review a pre-hearing brief.
Yahoo! Sports reported that White would not take Sherk's title because he is fed up with how the CSAC has handled the champion's case.
fuck! time to delet thread
Yea.. change your user title to 'interim' Champion '07.
It sounds like a fight for the #1 contender slot when Sherk gets back.
Should be an awesome fight between interim champ BJ versus true champ Sherk. I can't wait.
this is just getting fucking stupid. strip it or dont strip it, but no point in having this interim BS if you know when he can fight again.
just let BJ smash through stevenson and then go for sherk.
